Abstract:

Most of us may think we know Harry S. Truman, that almost legendary president who guided the nation through the final days of World War II. There was another side to harry Truman, however, that has suffered an ill-deserved neglect. Harry Truman loved music. He particularly loved the great classical composers, but melodic popular songs, folk ditties and tuneful musical shows all found a place in his heart. This book can but skim the surface of the depth of Truman's musical life, but it gives a pleasurable view of this bluntly honest, forthright man who reluctantly became President of the United States and who never, throughout his whole life, allowed a musical moment to escape him.
